Japanese Forces for Flames of War (Banzai Edition)   Leave a comment

I have a hard time saying no to new shiny models.  In this case my excuse was I dont have a Japanese Special Naval Landing Force!

WW2 Japanese artillery and guns   5 comments

After quite a bit time checking online websites and posting on the Yahoo FOW PTO forum, I have found some good candidates for Japanese artillery, mortars, AA, and more AT guns.

  • Japanese Command
  • Japanese Artillery Crew
  • Japanese Type 92 guns

Its been a few months since I have last posted. I havent completely forgotten my miniatures. Slowly, a USMC rifle company has been painted over the last couple months. The company consists of 3 platoons, 1 weapons platoon, 1 x 81mm mortar platoon, and 1 x M1917 HMG platoon. There are some options including flamethrowers, snipers, and bazookas.
